Ruby stone benefits the wearer with good health, wealth, and success. This precious stone is related to the planet Sun, which is the bearer of energy, power, and courage.

Who Should Not Wear Ruby Gemstone?

Apart from people facing unforeseen problems after wearing ruby stone, there are zodiac signs that need attention and proper guidelines to avoid facing any negative side effects of manik. While Ruby/chuni stone has very little negative impact on the wearer, people with these zodiac signs should give proper attention to wearing ruby in a correct manner. 

  1. Taurus ascendents should avoid wearing this red stone if their position of the sun is not favorable. This is because Taurus is governed by the planet Venus which is not compatible with the Sun, the ruling planet of ruby. Hence wearing ruby when the Sun is not at the right position in their horoscope can negatively impact them with heart and blood issues. 

  2. Ascendants of the Virgo zodiac sign should avoid wearing manik if the Sun is placed in the twelfth house. 

  3. Ascendants of the Capricorn sign are ruled by the planet Saturn which though has a father-son relationship with the planet Sun, are enemies of each other. Loss of focus in studies or jobs can be a serious negative effect of ruby on makar rashi.

  4. Governed by the planet Saturn, Aquarius zodiac sign generally doesn't share a compatible relation with the Sun. However, during the Mahadasha of the planet Sun, one must wear this stone. Hence before wearing, check if the sun is placed in 3rd, 7th, 10th, or 11th house.

  5. Ruled by different planets, Librans have to check if the Sun is in 11th house, 2nd house, and 7th house. 

  6. If the ruling planet is in the 6th house of Pisces wearing manik should be avoided. However, there are situations when Pisces can wear the stone. Thus, before making any decision to wear an original ruby gemstone by Pisces, a thorough consideration of the birth chart is required.
